  • Re: You know you're kids are watching too much food network... And a fail.

    Excellent save, good enough to eat IMHO - remember if the kids take the time to give you a shot, they do love you. (At least that's what I keep telling myself)

    I'm a parchment guy, never had a crust stick and the crusts always spring - makes it easier to rotate a half done pie. When using fresh mozza, it needs to dry a bit, like chicken skin. I shred it/slice it depends on the style of pie and let it sit uncovered in the fridge for at least a couple of hours. Gets rid of some of the moisture. 
  • Re: Insulate Gloves for Removing and Cutting Hot Meat. Any other Techniques?

    Great idea. Never thought about using a double glove to handle the heat. I often do the same thing with nitrile gloves to clean the gutters, damp, cold and wet. 

    Couldn't see the forest for the trees - thanks again!
  • Re: Egg sweating black, smokey tar??

    Use a drip pan. Mine has never done this, ever.
    This is the answer. You can let it drip onto the setter, but as it is just ceramic it will suck up what it can't burn off. Next cook you are dealing with lots of grease laden moisture. 
    Pork buts can lose as much as ⅓ of their weight as vapour and fat drippings, a drip pan will reduce the build-up considerably, unless you like that kinda war paint look. 

    EDIT - @fishlessman has the ugliest I've ever seen.
  • Re: Saturday Egging and Catchup

    Light dusting of snow I see. We are in the midst of a mini-monsoon, this morning had just over 12" of water in a garbage pail I left the lid off of yesterday. 
    Plans are for an inverted chicken (a la LS) for tonight, two of the grandkids might be here to spend the night. The Wii and the popcorn machine will get a workout. 

    Enjoy the weekend!

    BTW - hope that's juice in the glass, don't want to strain your brain helping out with that math!
  • Re: Going topless?

    I use the DFMT rather than the bottom vent, I don't like to bend over and fiddle with the lower vent 'cause I usually spill my drink....

    From a strictly science perspective I think using the DFMT provides more consistent dome to grid temps with less effect on temps if it is windy.
